Germany and the Baltic states support a new digital agenda for the EU

Germany and the Baltic states plan to campaign to ensure the European Union pursues a new digital agenda, and recently presented a list of demands.

The countries want the next European Commission, which will be formed after the upcoming European Parliament elections in June, to tackle the agenda.

German Transport Minister Volker Wissing said in Berlin on Monday that the aim is to create less state intervention and more freedom for European companies.

According to Wissing, the ‘innovation club’ should reduce unnecessary reporting requirements, increase the availability of data and promote common standards in the EU.

Regulators and government officials should focus on core tasks such as investments and competitive conditions for broadband expansion, Wissing said.

Wissing made his comments after a digital meeting with colleagues from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

Wissing said the club was also open to other EU countries.

Lithuanian Minister of Economy and Innovation Aušrinė Armonaitė explained that the aim was to make the EU a leading global digital location and increase the competitiveness of the EU’s technology sector.
